Here’s a 1985 Dodge RamCharger Prospector That’ll Make You Forget Your Itch for an Old-School Land Cruiser or Bronco
A 1985 Dodge RamCharger Prospector is available at Barrett Jackson’s auction in Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend. Regarded as perhaps the best-kept secret in the world of vintage trucks and SUVs, the RamCharger Prospector’s status is expected to blow up as prices for old Broncos, Land Cruisers, and Wagoneers become unattainable. Fortunately, the RamCharger Prospector can be still had at affordable prices, including this fine 1985 model that only has 7,563 original miles under its belt. There’s no reserve price attached to this particular piece, so it’s going to be sold to the highest bidder regardless of the final price. If you can score this burgeoning collector’s item, you could be ahead of the game in the quest for 1985 RamCharger Prospectors that are still, at the very least, in good running condition.
A 1994 Toyota Supra With 7k Miles Sold for Crazy Money
A 1994 Toyota Supra has just been sold for $121,000. Yup, you read that right. This number is kind of hurting my intelligence. $121,000 for a 1994 Toyota Supra? I mean, really?
True, the model sold through Bring a Trailer listing is nearly perfect. It is red, manual, twin-turbocharged, and it covered only 7,111 miles. But, $121,000 for a 1994 Toyota? Well, with the impending debut of the all-new Toyota Supra GR A90 in a week or so, the world obviously went berserk about the best Supra that ever was. The thing is that this particular version was really well cared for. And, it is one of the top of the line models from the age when it was produced.
Car for Sale: 2018 McLaren Senna With Just 14 Miles on the Clock
McLaren only built 500 Sennas and, as you’d expect, they’re all gone. As part of the company’s Ultimate Series of models, you had to be invited to buy one but, if none of the invitations found their way into your mailbox, now you’ve got a chance to buy one with delivery mileage onboard. The catch? You could have a 5,000+ square-foot house in Florida for the same kind of money.
Unveiled to the general public at last year’s Geneva Auto Show, the Senna is an extreme machine. It’s got to be, though, when you factor in its name, that of the late great Ayrton Senna, one of the best drivers to ever drive in the Formula 1 World Championship. It’s also very rare and the 500th example sold at auction for almost $3 million. Now, though, there’s one up for grabs for considerably less, and it’s just as pristine. If you’re a multi-millionaire, you could say this is a real bargain since prices will only go up for these things in the next few years.
Car for Sale: Two Different Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1 Alonso Editions
The Only Road-Legal Porsche 935 Is Up For Sale!
Porsche’s 935 race car was built to compete in the Group 5 class that was the pinnacle of GT racing in the late ’70s and very early ’80s. The 935 was the car to beat in Europe and across the Atlantic in the U.S. and even won Le Mans overall. Such accolades pushed F1 team owner Walter Wolf to want one, but not for the race track. The result was maybe the fastest road-legal car in the world at the time.
When you think about a GT racing car, you envision a car that’s based on a production model that was heavily modified, stripped of any useless equipment that only added weight, and then sent out on the track to compete against other vehicles like it. What’s unusual is to want for one of those race-prepped machines to be made street-legal again, while keeping most if not all of the racing bits on. That was the premise, largely speaking, of the insane GT1 class that lived a short life in the late ’90s but, even before that, there was one car that followed that same path: Walter Wolf’s street-going 935 K3 built by Kremer Racing of Germany.
You Can Get a Fully Licensed, Brand New 1966-1977 Ford Bronco if You’re Willing to Pay for it
The new Ford Bronco will arrive in 2020, but those who can’t wait that long now have the opportunity to have their fill with the original Bronco courtesy of a company called Gateway Bronco. The Illinois-based outfit has been restoring the first-generation Bronco since it started operations in 2016. But thanks to a partnership with Ford, Gateway Bronco has announced plans to go beyond restoring original Broncos and will build brand new, old Broncos under license from Ford. Mind you; these aren’t Gateway’s “interpretation” of the original Broncos. These are original Broncos that Gateway will build with the blessing of Ford. They even come with a five-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. Gateway plans to build three versions of the original Bronco, all in limited quantities. The price range of these models goes from $120,000 to $180,000.
Car for Sale: Rare 2007 Ferarri 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato
The Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato was unveiled back in 2007 and was just limited to nine units worldwide. Compare this model to modern-day Ferraris, and you will notice how radically different this is from what the Italian manufacturer makes now. Upfront, it looks nothing but a Ferrari, but the rear is where it looks different. This is exactly what modern-day automakers must do, instead of following the Russian doll design. The 599 GTZ you see here is actually up for sale, assuming you can afford it.
Here’s Your Chance to Own the First Pagani Huayra Roadster!
The Pagani Huayra Roadster is one hell of a car, and what makes it all the more special is that it is limited to just 100 units worldwide. The Huayra Roadster is based on the Huayra coupe and includes one huge improvement - unlimited headroom. Now, the very first example, chassis No. 001, is up for sale on James Edition. You can have it to call your own, assuming, of course, that you’re not afraid to ask how much the seller wants for it.
Beechmont Ford Performance Has Another Crazy Deal - this Time It Involves Nitrous and Mustang GTs
Beechmont Ford Performance, an Ohio-based dealership, is in the news again. And, for good reason. Its claim-to-fame was selling 700-horsepower Mustang GTs for a mere $40,000. This time, the showroom is selling brand new Mustang GTs with a bottle of nitrous fitted in the boot. Can it get any crazier than this?
A Gorgeous 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R Up For Sale
The Nissan Skyline GT-R of the R32 generation has been one of the JDM wet dreams of American petrolheads since its release back in 1989. Now, four years since it became legal to import one in the States, prices have started to level off, and this example could go for less than the market value.
The third generation of the Nissan Skyline GT-R, known shortly as the R32, was Nissan’s answer to the Group A regulations that were in effect in touring car racing at the time. With boatloads of power and AWD, it dominated the Japanese Touring Car scene until the ruleset was changed for 1994. The Australians were even more annoyed at the Skyline’s utter domination, which is how the "Godzilla" nickname stuck, of their national championship that they eventually banned both the all-wheel-drive system and the practice of turbocharging in the ATCC.
The countless racing successes as well as appearances in movies, cartoons, and video games made the car highly popular, both in native Japan as well as abroad. The American market couldn’t enjoy the GT-R upon launch due to it not meeting the NHTSA safety requirements at the time. This meant that American fans had to wait 25 years to import an R32 legally under the "25-year" law which allows cars that weren’t meant for the American market to be imported 25 years after they were first put into production. This opened a "Pandora’s Box" in the summer of 2014 which saw prices sky-rocket for pristine examples as well as the rare Nismo models. However, high-mileage GT-Rs have started to level off in prices and this particular model on BaT is currently at a $9,100 bid with six days left of the auction.

John Cena’s 2017 Ford GT is Getting Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper

8 Fastest Selling Cars on the Used Market
Luxury cars are appealing for those who want to showcase their lots in life. But just because there’s appeal in riding in class and elegance, that doesn’t mean the second-hand market has been good for models in this segment. There are a number of reasons why luxury cars don’t break the bank on the used-car market, and one of those reasons revolves around crossovers, SUVs, and even pickup trucks. Luxury cars, especially of the sedan persuasion, have lost their appeal because consumers these days have flocked towards more versatile vehicles, whether its’ an SUV, pickup, or in the case of the cars below, affordable sedans, hatchbacks, and hybrids. An unexpected paradigm shift is another reason.
The idea of what a luxury car is has eroded because customers’ tastes aren’t what they used to be. Not a lot of people are as interested in the bespoke materials inside a car or how fast it is from 0 to 60 mph. What matters these days is a sprinkling of all those things in one versatile package. Combine all that with cheaper costs in the second-hand market and lower maintenance costs upon ownership, and you get the picture why second-hand luxury cars aren’t as appealing as they used to be, and why the cars below have become the fastest-selling models in the used-car market.
